The location is cool. It's a bit on the grungy side. I've only been to the 18+ events. It's just okay. I'm not sure how it is for other events. I don't think this place opens on a weekly basis, as in for non-events also. What sticks out? -The waterfront. Nice view (Bad smell) -It's roomy. -Always a long line. The security guards were not always friendly even to civil people like me. (I never try to cause anything ever) --I swear they check IDs hella slow or something because the line seems to never move. Or they could be making it seem like it's a happening club by making the illusion of a long line. Who wants to wait in the cold with the stinky air for 20-30 minutes?

Sugar makes a good iced coffee. That's all I really care about. But on top of that, it's a comfortable space while being really sleek at the same time. How do people make that happen? I'll be caffeinating there from time to time.

Holy meatmarket, it's Cuba Libre! I've been to Cuba Libre on a number of occasions, and I get the feeling if Austin had a hipster, trendy L.A. nightclub/lounge thing going on, Cuba Libre would be a decent starting point. The drinks are a hair overpriced, and the service varies greatly from good to bad in my opinion. That said, the atmosphere and design is well thought out and if you are hankering for somewhere to put on some decent threads and mingle between mid-20'somethings out on the prowl, Cuba Libre makes a fine choice. The lighting is dim and accented to create a bit of mood, and the seating area along the wall makes for a decent spot to sit and talk. In the back, there is an area where a DJ is usually playing dance music complete with essentially no lighting and a bar. However, there is no cover at Cuba Libre, so considering the fact you can have a pretty good time without paying admission, it's easy to see why some people like Cuba Libre quite a bit.
